Freeride paradise Savognin

From piste to powder, leave behind stylish tracks and make the white splendour whirl. Savognin offers countless deep snow downhill rides with untouched powder slopes all around the ski area. However, behaving correctly off-piste is vital! That is why avalanche, freeride and deep snow courses are offered in Savognin. The mountain climbing school in Pontresina organises all courses and they are carried out by qualified mountain guides.

Report from the magazine "Whiteout" (March 2012)

Wide, hardly frequented "surfaces", which can be easily reached from the lift, are on offer. Various windlips, drifts and other small tricks make the heart beat faster. After a great firn slope from Piz Martegnas to Radons, we discovered untouched powder on the underbelly of the Piz Martegnas, in the direction of the Laritg ski lift. It should be noted that there has not been any snow for two weeks and that it is already mid-March! Wow!

In the cosy "Tigignas" restaurant, which served as the destination and media centre during previous world cup championships, we were spoilt with Grisons specialities such as Pizokels or the traditional barley soup. In the afternoon we had a lot of fun on the flanks of the Piz Cartas. Passing Crest' Ota to Radons. The long freeride descent offers vast expanses which encourage you to carve and spray, as well as passages between wind drifts for tricks. Surprisingly, you are never forced to get off the board in order to get past flat stretches. And even as a rider who is familiar with the area, there is no risk of finding yourself in rocky terrain. Following a ski slope that runs along the stream, you can comfortably return to the Radons lift station, and after a short ski lift ride the dream descent can begin once again! In spite of the vast expanses and many freeride possibilities, the area is fairly straightforward.
